time around. obama then looked forward to his next and final four years in office calling an end to the politics of division and saying the united states could achieve anything if it acted as one. >> a decade of war is now ending. an economic recovery has begun. america's possibilities are limitless, for we possess all of the qualities this world without boundaries demand, youth and drive, diversity and openness. an endless capacity for risk and a gift for reinvention. my fellow americans, we are made for this moment and we will seize it so long as we seize it together. >> our washington correspondent was there. you were at the inauguration. obama had quite a big wish list. take us through it. >> well, it is not really a wish list. inaugural speeches are not the place for a wish list. but you can read between the lines. i would sum it up with two words, unity and equality. a message to republicans meaning let's work together for a change to try to make things better in america, especially economically speaking and also for the budget. now equality is something that rsonates very
equality. >> right. >> something that i had always felt in my heart ever since obama's speech several years ago, about where one america, the democratic national convention, something that had always stayed in my psyche, i think. and i always wanted to write a poem about it. and i finally got the assignment and i think there were echos of that in my mind and something i've always believed, especially since i moved to a small town. the idea of unity. not only unity but that we're all so necessary and every little piece is what makes this puzzle of america work. from every walk of life, every facet. that's kind of what i wanted to bring together in the poem. >> i'm wondering as a gay american, to be on that stage today as part of the inauguration, the president talked about stonewall and said it in the same sentence as selma and seneca calls and talked ability equality for gay and lesbian americans. as you were sitting there when you heard that, what did you think? >> i thought it was simply amazing. i mean, i don't think i've ever heard that powerfully before, especially when i was there rig
. and president obama said today, this is our moment. and it wasn't his moment four years ago. because he couldn't do so many of the things he wanted to do if he wanted to get reelected. now he doesn't have to worry about that. this is his moment. it is his moment for immigration. it is his moment for gun control. it is his moment for equality. for me that was one of the most stunning things he said. because he is in the now right now. >> i'm wondering as you watch these balls, this is a tradition that goes back an awfully long way. so many people wondering what michelle obama was going to wear. what were you looking for? >> i think part of it, what you look for is whether or not she is going to embrace a new designer. whether or not she will do something that takes her outside the corporate structure of fashion. and one of the reasons we were all enthusiastically watching is because we recognize that every time she does wear something from a young designer, she makes a very strong statement that kind of normalizes the fashion industry. she focuses our attention on the fact that it is an industr
, president obama from four years ago and how he's changed, and then the girls, too. watching them grow up and seeing them in that moment, just enjoying it was awesome. >> absolutely. michelle obama always says she wants them to be normal, nice and well mannered. >> seems like she's doing a great job. >> doing a great job. members of congress will hold a news conference to mark the 40th anniversary of the landmark supreme court decision legalizing abortion in most cases. now a new nbc news/wall street journal poll finds 70% of americans say roe v. wade should not be overturned. >>> former penn state football coach joe paterno died on this date last year. joe paterno's legacy has been tainted by the jerry sandusky scandal. supporters will gather for a candlelight vigil. >>> and president obama and vice president biden and their spouses will attend a national prayer service this morning, an inaugural tradition started by george washington. >>> all day long you can stay on top of the very latest developments on those stories and the very best political analysis on msnbc. and tonight, be sure
inauguration comes a celebration. this year was no exception. president obama and the first lady taking center stage. you can see it right there. dancing as jennifer hudson sang let's stay together. >> a man and a woman bravely serving our nation. president obama saying thanks to those heros. >> thank you for volunteering. thank you for stepping up. thank you for keeping us strong. thank you for always makingous proud. i have no greater honor than being your commander-in-chief. >> doug mcelway is live with more on the inauguration. you have had a heck of a 24-hours, doug, working hard. >> i think a lot of us have. it was combed standing out there all day. he paid homage to thomas jefferson's i mmortal words we hold these truths self evident that we are all created equal. then he qualified those words. >> history tells us why these truths may be self evident they have neve been self executing. >> so he began his second term with an inaugural address which could be radioing battles ahead. >> we will respond to the threat of climate change knowing that the failure to do so would be tray our child
years. we want to show you some images that say it all. this is president obama, four years ago. and today. the marathon of the past four years etched on his face. and he would say, in his graying hair. and michelle obama holding the bible as her husband took the oath then and today. michelle obama. and the girls, sasha and malia. what a difference four years makes in the lives of these young women. >>> and now i want to bring in our chief white house correspondent jonathan karl. >> reporter: well, that's right. that was the big, the lofty, the ambitious today. tomorrow, reality comes back. the president, if you looked at that stage, it's the people that hold the key for his second term agenda. over his right shoulder, speaker john boehner. it is boehner that can stop the president's agenda dead in its tracks. all of the president's priorities including gun control, combatting climate change, ultimately must go through a republican-controlled house that is led by boehner, to get anything passed. he must find a way to work with boehner, despite deep political differences on the v
in, the change you'll work for. >> what's president obama done for labor in these last four years? >> well, i think he's tried to do quite a bit. i think in his heart he definitely supports, you know, working families. you know, part of the outcome piece, is what gets through the u.s. congress. so he definitely supported health care bill much more like speaker pelosi's tn what we ended up getting through the senate finance committee onto the senate floor and eventually adopted a year later. he definitely supported workers' rights legislation. he definitely supported much more aggressive moves to stop the foreclosures. he definitely supported climate change. so part of this is really, you know, we would love to see more active white house support for these democracy initiatives so that the change that i'm sure he still believes in had some reality to it instead of just, you know, on the back bench somewhere. >> did he fight hard enough? i don't want to put you on the spot -- yeah, i want to put you on the spot. >> that's okay, you can put me on the spot. >> i wonder why labor keeps
of obama and the nation next. cnn improved security and economic climate. after four years if obama is reelected. i do not suggest the campbell should not be taken, simply that history playing with politics might give us pause. so what does history project about a second term for barack obama? where he reelect it was so few president having success at that time in office. what are the challenges that face those who had trouble or failed second term and what allowed others to succeed and can barack obama overcome these challenges if he's reelected to become a member of the select group of presidents that waited through the quagmire of the second term and somehow came through relatively unscathed. success in the second term does not imply there were not failures are significant stumbles. some even severe during my tenure. that do not impact how to be the fulfillment of a significant number of the following measures of success. first, the president must provide defense against foreign or domestic dress. secondly, the president must retain or expand economic, political or social opportu

: the world is a battlefield." jeremy, talk about president obama's first four years and where we're going now. you got a chance to hear his inaugural address. what did you think of it? >> i think if we look back at the first term of the obama administration, what we saw was this very popular democratic president who had campaigned in terms of his broader rhetoric during the presidential campaign against john mccain on the notion he was going to transform the way the u.s. conducted its foreign policy around the world. he then proceeded to double down on some of the greatest successes of the bush administration. if you look at the use of the state secrets privilege or the with the obama administration expanded the drone wars, powered special operations forces from jsoc to join special operations command to operate in countries where the united states is not at war, if you look at the way the obama administration essentially boxed congress out of any effective oversight role of the covert aspect of u.s. foreign policy, what we really have is a president who has normalized for many, net -- many l
four years ago. >> president obama surprised many people by including a line in his address about gay rights. >> our journey is not complete till our gay brothers brothers and sisters are treated like everyone else under the law. surely the love must be equal as well. >> it is the first time the issue of gay rights has been mentioned in an inaugural address. >> the opera house opened its doors for a watch party today. >> my fellow americans, the oath i have sworn before you today -- >> people gathered to watch president obama's faith in america's future speech. one woman came for the atmosphere and a speech that is all about community involvement. >> you know, he strikes the right amount of hope and challenges all of us to step forward and participate in our government which is important. >> people were thrilled the festivities on the day that honored martin luther king, jr. for more on today's festivities in washington, log on to www.ktvu.com and click on the inauguration tab. >>> while addressing the nation today president obama promised action on climate change. ktvu's health and s

the report. >> for president obama, plenty of differences from four years ago. he's grayer, weather warmer, crowd smaller, and the oath of office had no slip ups. this time, he was moe aggressive in using his inaugural address to reprize the central message of the campaign making it clear he believes he has a mandate. >> for weeks, the people understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do well and a growing many barely make it. >> reporter: the nation's first african-american president sworn in for a second term on the martin luther king jr. holiday leaning on the words of king and lincoln. >> through blood drawn by lash and sword, we learn no union founded on the principles of liberty and equality could survive half slave and half free. >> casting himself in the mold of the great civil rights leader, vowed action on a series of issues from climate change to immigration reform and became the first president to use the word "gay" in the address. >> our gurn noi are not complete until wives, daughters, can earn a wage equal to their efforts. our journey is not complete un
deal. he's a big deal. >> make sure the mike was off. >> he has been married to michelle obama 21 years. he is 51. she just turned 49 years old. i was at a ceremony yesterday when where they sang happy birthday to the first lady and he was reelected by a wide margin after a long and tough election. this is the tab low you look at every four years and just think to yourself, this is democracy changing hands. >> this is it, when you see that grand sweep of the people, and it closeness on the small group up there on the podium as well as the former president of the united states, george h. w. bush. >> and his brother is behind him. >> george h. w. bush is not present. justice sotomayor, scalia and roberts. and james taylor, and he will be performing later. >> we're waiting. chuck schumer will be here. >> just to complete that one story, jessie jackson was running against walter mondale. it was a mondale rally and it was a african-american letter carrier. i said who are you for? he said i support jessie jackson because my son instead of wanting to be magic johnson, he wants -- >> now the mo
lady of the united states, michelle obama. as you watched her grow in this role the last four years, what do you think? >> well she has done -- she is a, the most popular person in america just about. she has firmed up the sense of this family as a very responsible family that people can relate to, which was not always going to be obvious. so i think she has had that important role. she has not had the role hillary clinton had of getting involved in public policy. and i wouldn't be surprised -- and this is something she is capable of doing so i wouldn't be surprised over the second term if she drifts more in into that role. more publicly, i think she has had a significant role behind the scenes. >> jill biden has just been introduced to the crowd and taken her place. mark? >> i think it's remarkable, when she started in the campaign in 2008, where the remark about, i've never been more proud of my country, she was attacked and became a political listening rod, and it's been a very conscious, concentrated and effective effort to bring her back to the point where she is a figure of to
of compromise which marked obama's days as president of the harvard law review and even his first years in office. i'm wondering, did you see a different barack obama out there yesterday? >> well, you certainly saw a very strong and determined president and i think that's good for this country. i think he is also a president and by personality, someone who does believe in compromise and negotiation, and some of the difficult fiscal questions we have going forward, he has been absolutely willing to compromise with the republican leadership on, and is certainly going to be willing to work with them and need to work with them in the future. but he made it very clear that in some ways, what he was referencing is that's the work of government that we have to get done. that's in some ways, it shouldn't be so difficult. we need to raise the debt ceiling so we should do it. we need to, you know, have a budget and need to reduce the deficit and need to make investments for the future. what he wanted to talk about is what a great country it is and how we need to make sure it's a country that offe
. they asked specifically what was the best thing that president obama got done in the last four years. coming in at number three on the list was preventing middle class tax hikes while raising taxes on the highest levels of income. that was the third greatest accomplishment of the president's first term, according to the latest nbc poll. number two, killing bin laden. killing osama bin laden is what president obama himself refers to as the single most important day of his presidency. for americans at large, that was number two. what ranked higher than that? what does americans think was the single best accomplishment of his first term, even better than killing bin laden? it was ending the war in iraq. president obama campaigned on ending the war in iraq in 2008. he was against that war right from the very start, and in december 2011, after eight and a half years of war, the president, as he promised, did bring the iraq war to a close. when president obama took the office -- took the oath of office four years ago, there were 144,000 u.s. troops in iraq. today it is about 200. that right there
washington d.c. as president obama sets his agenda for 4 more years. >> plus why everyone's talking about something called the carly. >> good evening. i'm elizabeth cook. >> and i'm ken. >> we sent reporter christen aira and it was a star studied event tonight. we've heard the president side in his inauguration speech, jennifer hudson sang let's state together at 1 of 2 inaugural balls. >> today we experience the majesty of our democracy. >> he also danced with a staff sergeant. the first lady wore jason wu. the events were scaled back, but the celebration was not. the highlight of the day came hours earlier just before noon the president hut his hand on bible -- put his hand on bibles owned by martin luther king and abraham lincoln. >> he spoke about eclusion, cooperation, and hope. >> as he was leaving the capitol steps, the president paused to take in the spec spectacle. he said i'll never see this again. >> in case you're wondering the 3 words that he uttered, gay, making history today by mentioning gays. as we went on throughout washington d.c., we had an opportunity to meet with a c
a great, day, everyone! >> thanks again! have a great day! >>> four more years! president obama kicks off his second term with a rallying cry for where he wants the country to go. some say calling it progressive is an understatement. but can the president get bills on climate change and immigration through the republican-controlled house? meanwhile, in the middle east, israelis go to the polls and prime minister benjamin netanyahu is expected to keep his job. but what course does he want to take and what does that mean for the u.s. relationship with israel? >>> and today marks the 40th anniversary of the supreme court's landmark ruling on abortion in the case of roe versus wade. this morning, new poll numbers show what a majority of the country thinks about this always controversial topic. good morning from washington. it's tuesday, january 22nd, 2013, and this is "the daily rundown." i'm chris cillizza in for the "he lost his voice" chuck todd. let's get right to the first reads of the morning. five years ago, candidate barack obama laid out his vision of the presidency, talking about le
term. mrs. obama is now working on an expanded agenda for her next four years. >> one of her advisers told me they're having about eight meetings about all of this, over a series of weeks. >> reporter: and she has become a fashion icon. today, donning a coat by relatively unknown designer thom browne compared with a j crew belt. high fashion with middle america accessible. >> she is someone who is much more connected to, i think, sort of the general sense of what's fashionable, what's trendy, what's interesting. what's modern. instead of trying to be this sort of creature of washington. >> reporter: but today she has embraced the city where she and her family will live for the next four years. now sasha and malia are at this point 11 and 14. that means dating, college applications and all of the challenges for families that go along with those teenage years. brian. >> and they get to grow up four more years in that house with everybody watching. kristen welker, white house correspondent, with us tonight. kristen, thanks. we'll take another break. we're back in a moment with more of ou
been following president obama's speechmaking over the years. what stands out beyond yesterday? as another good one and a bad one? caller: i think the other speech that students will be read -- students will be reading this speech and the one after the shootings at sandy hook. that will be the obama portion of their reading in the speeches of american culture. those two speeches stand as one of the best things that i have heard in my life. i mean, i am talking and that good. host: mason next in a dayton, ohio. caller: good morning. how are you? are really thought president obama's speech was an lightning, and i thought it was very motivating and inspirational. it really spoke on the points that ring true for the majority of americans in this country. most of the polls have shown support for the president is at an all-time high of presidency is over the past several decades. i really hope that his call for gop not to be so obstructionist in the next four years, actually get the work done, is answered. on a second note, i have been very upset about the callers that have called in
-part conversation about the presidency of barack obama and the next four years joined by doris kearns goodwin, jon meacham, bob woodward, bob caro, and michael beschloss. >> i know it's the consensus that we're -- barack obama has to do is get along with the republicans. i'd like to say something about that. president obama is fond of quoting-- and if he isn't, i am-- martin luther king's statement "the moral arc of the universe bends slowly but it bends towards justice." in the first term, president obama did bend that moral arc. he got health insurance, peace of mind for more than 30 million people. the bill may be floored but it's passed. in the second term i see a sort of differently. everyone's attacking the moral arc of justice-- social security medicare everyone's saying we have to cut it bck. that's the great safety net for the american people. i almost see him as a defender. he has to defend social security and medicare in a fiscally responsible way. >> rose: inaugural day 2013, assessment by journalists and looking forward with historians when we continue. >> rose: today barack obama was
they accuse him of not compromising? president obama has learned the lessons of four years of power politics and how to make republicans ied logs sit up and listen. >> medicare and medicaid and social security. these do not zap our initiative. they strengthen us. they do not make us a nation of takers. they free us to take the risks that make this country great. >> you got that, tea partiers? the president went right after the cynical romney/ryan republican view of the world. makers versus takers. calling out the extremists who refuse to listen to the american people. >> we cannot mistake absolutism for principle. or substitute spectacle for politics. or treat name calling as reasoned debate. >> this was a big speech of real vision. and the president made it clear he's ready to fight at their own game because the people are worth fighting for. >> for we, the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. we are true to our creed when a little girl born into poverty knows she has the same chance as anybody else to have a
for the next four years and called for collective action to put them in practice. >> obama: now more than ever we must do these things together as one nation and one people. we the people, understand that our country cannot succeed when a shrinking few do very well and a growing many barely make it. we believe that america's prosperity must rest upon the broad shoulders of a rising middle class. we must make the hard choices to reduce the cost of healthcare and the size of our deficit. but we reject the belief that america must choose between caring for the generation that built this country and investing in the generation that will build its future. we will respond to the threat of climate change knowing that the failure to do so would betray our children and future generations we will defend our people and uphold our values through the strength of arms and rule of law. we the people, declare today that the most evident of truths that all of us are created equal equal, is the star that guides us still, just as it guided our forebears through seneca falls and selma and stone wall. for our jou
of have to do a mindset check. it is very confusing. >> last year, the obama administration had a package of recommendations that appeared to be dead on arrival. why? >> examples-simpson? >> i am assuming. -- is that the bulls-simpson? -- simpson-bowles? >> i am assuming. >> i think there was pushed back in the right way. the commission was focused on cuts and not investments. the great deficit in this country is the investment deficit, the investment in people and infrastructure. there were attempts to revive it. it was a super committee proposal. i think it is a good thing the super committee failed to reach an agreement. we will see where that goes. it was not a fair deal. there was so little revenue and so much padding. -- so much cutting. someone was writing the other day that the anti-tax mania is at an all-time low. reagan was willing to raise taxes. it shows how extreme. someone said the of the grover norquist may be the most powerful person in america. the new pledge he has held canada is to. he has held candidates -- the new pledge he has held the new candidates to is keeping mi
't really answer. reagan, obama, less than 30 years, what's happened in america? >> i think, you know, f.d.r. once said that great presidents become great because they come to power at a moment when ideas in the life of the nation require clarification. and they offer that clarification. ronald reagan's rise was an answer to the excesses of the new deal and the great society. he has a man who brought the conversation from the first point being what can the state do to being what the market can do? i think what's happened in the last 30 years and what's happening right now is that we know in our hearts that the choices we face that you just alluded to, the gao report, the expensive healthcare. the expense of the entitlements, the idea that so much of our future is mortgaged and only growing higher is a tough choice. and we're not apparently ready as a people and certainly not as an administration, and the obama administration to make those hard choices. i think we are threading water in the united states. and i think president obama is in some ways a figure of a threading water are a. >>
in the space of, what, almost 30 years, change so dramatically in our philosophy? >> well, first of all, obama today did say that it's a fiction to believe that government alone can solve all of the problems. so he is taking somewhat of a middle course now. if you look at that speech, i mean, it's an odd speech he just threw out things. there is kind of no coherent plan and, again, i think the missed opportunity was to say to the american public and the world, look, this is where i'm going. this is what matters. one, two, three. these are the things i'm going to do. and there was a scatter shot approach. and i think a lot of the speech was unnecessarily vague. >> you didn't answer my question. i know it's a little bit of an esoteric nation. how county nation change in less than 30 years where we are rornld reagan becomes icon into what we have now which is 1 will 0 degrees opposite? what changed? >> i think part of this and looking at presidents you realize that their personal appeal and popularity is often what people vote on. and that happened to reagan and obama as you point out is personal
. president. >> president barack obama begins four more years with a progressive barn burner. >> you and i as citizens have the power to set this country's course. you and i as citizens have the obligation to shape the debates of our time. >> it was the 57th presidential inauguration for the 44th commander in chief, or as fox news calls it -- >> the most depressing day of the year. >> tonight congressman keith ellison of the house progressive caucus on the president's call to arms. john nichols of the nation magazine on his defense of the big three. terry o'neill on a historic speech for women. jonathan alter and james peterson on the cultural impact of a president linking seneca falls, selma and stonewall. and my thoughts on a new hope for the american class. >> progress does not compel us to settle centuries long debates about the role of government for all time, but it does require us to act in our time. >> good to have you with us tonight, folks. thanks for watching. this was a big deal. in the 57th formal inauguration of an american president, barack obama delivered one of the most pr
committed suicide and stand down him, obama's grandfather was eight years old at the time that obama's great-grandmother died.o they lived in a little house on began and street down a few blocks and the great-grandfather ralph done him rent a garage in auto shop on sixth avenue which is right around the corner. that is where she took some strychnine and was found dead on the night of thanksgiving 1926. >> can you drive a little slower? we are now approaching the house at 703 buchanan. a little white two-story shotgun house, no more than 10 feet wide one house from the corner of seventh on buchanan. at little front porch. i'm sure it's the same house since 1926. this is where ruth dunham died. this is the garage where the drug is parked. >> that brick is old. >> yeah. >> host: at david maraniss how n old was she when she killedself herself? >> guest: she was 26. she was born in 1900.l >> host: why did she kill herself? >> guest: she killed herself because, well she left a suicide note that said she was distraught over her husband's -g so that was the immediate cause. >> host: that was the>>os
,000 or $450,000 a year. there's more space that people give it credit for. obama's speech yesterday, this isn't getting at an agenda that's radical. it's not a different agenda than when he ran for 2008 and not a different one that he pushed in 2010 or that he got re-electeded for in 2012. there's a lot more here that people -- it's because there is a broad consensus to some degree in this country. >> maybe america is turning into the progressive society that ronald reagan would be terrified of. let me ask you in terms of -- >> be still my heart. >> michael steel is going to have a heart attack on set. there's been talk about this being a triptic, which was the election night speech and the inaugural speech, and now we have the state of the union. what do we expect from that in terms of how aor specific on the policy that he gestured towards yesterday. >> i think he has to keep up this pressure going forward, and i think the real question i think we'll be looking for tea leaves in the state of the union address to what extent does he want to keep these as issues and continue building momentum
obama had a vision. a vision of an america built to last. over the last four years we have made unprecedented investments in our nation's transportation system. i have personally visited over 200 cities in america. meeting with local leaders and delivering on what they have told us they needed. we've put people to work on our roads, on our bridges, on our rails in communities big and small. i have visited every state and 15 countries. and i think as a result of the work that we've done that our team has done, with many of you in this room as partners, we have made it easier to ride a bike, hop on a train, or catch a bus. in fact i'm thrilled to tell you about our new streamlined approach for the new starts competitive grant program. in 2010 we made a commitment and a promise to change the way we rated and evaluated capital transit projects so that more good ideas could get into the federal funding pipeline. i want to especially thank peter rogoff and his team at the federal transit administration for making this happen, for con continuing to push it. i'm proud to say we deliver
